After nearly twenty years in senior sales roles with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and a year as General Manager for Code Blue, Cedric Edwards has taken up the reins as General Manager, Technology Solutions Group for Lexel Systems.
Recognised as “one of the best leaders in the industry” Edwards’ role as GM for the Technology Solutions Group sees him lead Lexel System’s procurement business as well as managing its 20 strong sales and procurement team.
“It was an easy decision to make,” explains Edwards. “I have worked with the Lexel team for over two decades and know them as well as anyone. It speaks volumes that as a privately owned New Zealand company Lexel has continued to grow and expand in a fast moving, highly competitive market.”
Lexel Systems has over 200 full time employees across New Zealand and is a trusted provider of IT procurement, services and recruitment to some of our biggest brands. As one of three General Managers heading its dedicated business units, CEO Noel Simpson sees Edwards as a key appointment in the future of Lexel Systems.
“Cedric is widely recognised across the industry for his ability to set sales strategy, attract talent and successfully manage teams,” says Noel Simpson. “As a company we are extremely excited to have him join us. We expect his experience to be invaluable as we look to further expand the growth trajectory Lexel Systems is on.”
